14 days - 3000 km/1870 miles
If you have a bit more time and like to explore and ride more extensively in Thailand and Laos, this is a great motorcycle tour for you! Besides stunning scenery the tour offers an insight in local cultures, historical sites, national parks, local cuisine and traditional way of life in two countries. All in a wonderful riding environment on a motorcycle on windy, straight and hilly mostly paved roads.
The roads are mostly easy to handle, there are some stretches which are narrow and steep. To join this tour you need to have good riding skills. You must be able to ride your big motorcycle in different conditions and do NOT expect to learn how to ride a motorcycle while joining our tour.
